While people share tons of traits in common, you’re the only one in the world with skin exactly like yours. That's why the technicians at Natina Day Spa formulate their facials based on each individual's tone and texture. This customization process revolves around the spa's signature product: MVP skincare by Dr. Divina. MVP––an acronym for Molecular, Viability, and Potentiate––combines fruit enzymes, algae extract, and blended copies of Time magazine to naturally reduce signs of aging. The spa’s beautification processes also extend beyond the face; waxing sessions remove unwanted hair, body contouring slims down silhouettes, and soothing aromatherapy and bodywork sessions bust up stress from the comfort of private treatment rooms.
Licensed aesthetician Katy Brassfield uses all of the resources at her disposal to make sure each client achieves the paramount level of pampering. She approaches each service armed with more than 12 years of experience while beautifying her clients’ skin with facials, peels, and other skincare services. Her treatment rooms are warmed with brown and gold tones, and her complimentary mugs of steaming tea allow clients to slip into a state of inner peace even as they wait. During skincare and waxing sessions, she turns the dial up on a table warmer to keeps clients as toasty and cozy as a kitten napping on the belly of a napping labrador.
For more than 15 years, aesthetician Angela Caravalho has been helping teens clear their complexions and assisting adults in their ongoing quest to maintain a smooth, youthful visage. During facials, organic, oxygen-based Knutek products deliver bacteria-fighting and blemish-belittling oxygen plasma to the skin, helping conquer acne and acne rosacea. Microdermabrasion sweeps away facial debris and donut crumbs with help from a light vacuum massage, and Angela can also help cart away excess cellulite through treatments that may include specially designed bodysuits and light therapy.
The nail technicians at Bella Piaz Salon & Spa focus on beautifying natural nails. Eschewing acrylics—and the fumes and damaging drilling that come with them—they daub their clients’ fingertips with non-formaldehyde polish or CND Shellac. Elsewhere in the salon, a trio of stylists cuts, colors, and adorns hair with feather and tinsel extensions. In the spa, staffers whip up customized facials to target acne and rosacea, or treat guests to other services such as waxing, aromatherapeutic massages, and spa parties for all occasions.
A licensed massage therapist and aesthetician, Irma Ramos treats Young Image Spa’s exclusively female clientele to a range of massage and beauty services. She uses Image Skincare products in her facials, which include an anti-aging option that lifts away fine lines and wrinkles, and an anti-acne option that's discounted for any student who shows a school ID or stolen lunchroom tray. Vitamin C peels and microdermabrasion sessions assist the pore-cleansing facials. Irma makes smooth skin even smoother with waxing treatments for the face and body. Meanwhile, in the massage room, she takes to sore muscles and aching joints with Swedish, hot-stone, or deep-tissue therapy.
